I don't think this is right.  An obfuscated version of a font would not
use .ttf or .otf, nor would it use a TT MIME type if one existed.  It 
would/should be a distinct data type.

The format hints associated with specific URL's are for distinguishing
between formats, this allows a user agent to skip over files it knows it
can't use such as EOT fonts in Mozilla/WebKit.
